Clean (10 Reps)

Standing in quarter squat position with hands at shoulder width at the shins. The feet are slightly wider than shoulder width apart and toes pointing out slightly. The band is in front of the body. Extend the hips and the knees while keeping the arms rigid downward.

As the hands pass the knees, thrust the hips forward and slightly bend the knees to avoid locking them. Quickly extend the hips and knees and stand up on the toes. Keep the hands as close to your body as possible.

When the lower body is fully extended, shrug the shoulders upward rapidly while maintaining rigid arm position. As the shoulders reach their highest elevation "break" your elbows. Continue to pull the hands as high and as long as possible.

Flip the wrists so the palms are facing inwards and "catch" the weight that is applying force downwards. Simultaneously, flex the hips and knees into a squat position. Keep elbows at hand height. Finish the movement with a front squat.
